, former clinton adviser, author of the book "screwed," dick morris is back. what happened to the party of the people, dick? >> there was no question he didn't have a two-thirds majority. probably didn't have a simple majority. that shows how deeply, deeply against our traditional values as a country and our support of israel the core of the democratic party is. here, the president was trying to re-insert jerusalem and god and his own delegates didn't want to let him do it. >> sean: yeah. you know one thing, the l.a. mayor who was obviously trying to get the crowd again and again to go his way, it was actually written in the prompter. we got a shot of this, where it said in the opinion of the chair two,-thirds having voted in the affirmative, it was already written in as a preordained issue. let's go to the speech of the president. your general thoughts? >> i'm sorry. before we leave that, i want to point out that there were three things that were deleted from the israel plank. jerusalem, which they put back in. a provision that said we should isolate hamas, as a terrorist organization.

. but -- what was the last time a big story at the convention? dick morris in 1996. >> greg: that was a story. you can discuss this topic or the other topic we might get to. >> dana: yesterday you talked about joe klein who said on one of the other show, some show that maybe obama should play the race card. it defended him. i said well maybe what he meant is that president obama should come out and try to heal people. so today he tries to explain it and he made it worse by saying if the current republican dog whistling continues, blah, blah, blah. i hereby withdraw my support and defense of him, joe klein. >> greg: the funny thing about that he said i'd never play the race card because it's cliche term. then he uses the word dog whistle now replaced the race card as clicheed term. a walking cliche hack. >> bob: it's worth the discussion that 93% of blacks vote for democrats. >> greg: it's worth talking about but i'm cutting you off. >> bob: thank you. >> greg: we could do a show on that. 24 hours on that. but we won't. coming up, ready for convention trivia? we took your questions on twitter

again. dick morris with a brand new column up saying the wind is at romney's back. he will win unless there is a catastrophe. if you hear that and digest that day after day, it is going to be uncomfortable on election night. >> john: i think eric, that explains the falsehoods in paul ryan's speech. so many people were shocked the v.p. nominee could tell so many easily disproved lies in his speech. i think it's because the man is used to living in the bubble and speaking to audiences that won't fact check him. >> that's a good point. people were taken back since when do vice presidential candidates at the convention just sort of make stuff up? >> john: i think it was established in 2008. >> she really said -- the president was the bridge to nowhere, i think. paul ryan just followed it up with the g.m. plant closing. completely unforced air. didn't have to make it. i think there's something to it. he's been telling this lie about that plant closing for so long to either republican audiences or republican talk shows or o
